Position: Supplier Relationship Co-Ordinator
How long have you been working at YPO? Two months
What do you like most about working at YPO?
It’s great to work for a company that focuses on their customers and gives back to them too! Also, YPO and I share a lot of common interests when it comes to social values like carbon reduction initiatives and sustainable product sourcing/design/manufacture.
What are your main responsibilities in the education procurement team?
It’s my responsibility to manage the quotation processes and tender responses for our education customers when they’re looking to procure school supplies, furniture, and other related products.
What’s the most rewarding part of your job?
I find the most rewarding part of my job is being able to help customers save money on their educational spending, alongside the relationships I get make with them. I love speaking to people and getting to know how I can help them the most.
Describe your role in three words: Diverse, interesting, supportive
How did you get involved in procurement?
I come from a sales background. I’ve worked in car sales, telesales and most recently gas and electric sales working on tenders and general sales admin. However, I wanted to have a job where I can focus on the customer more and take care of their spending needs. Now I’ve started my career at YPO I’m excited to start talking to customers, build relationships and help them get the best products to suit them.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
When I’m not trying to find new movies to watch or playing games on my Play Station, I love taking my two French Bulldogs on long walks with my partner. I’m set to move into a new house this year too, so a lot of DIY house projects are pending! I’m also a massive rugby league and football fan – once the fans are back you’ll find me on the terraces at Elland Road and Headingley!
